Penn State Wilkes-Barre proudly offers its students a $3.7 million Athletics and Recreation Building (ARB). The ARB and its surrounding fields and courts offer a wide range of fitness options to our students, including specialized equipment and programs. This facility contains a large gym, a regulation basketball court, two racquetball courts, a squash court, a Cybex weight room with weight-training and cardiovascular equipment (including exercycles, treadmills, stairmasters and elliptical trainers), and a multi-purpose room for fitness classes and other activities. Outdoor sites for soccer, tennis, and running also are available. Spinning, Zumba, yoga and pilates classes are offered regularly.
Please note: Due to area functions and children's programs in our main gym, volleyball and basketball are available only when the gym is not otherwise in use.
All individuals using the ARB must sign in and show ID when entering the building or when requested to do so.
